GLOBAL REVIEW 2017 The marina at Blu Harbor, a community development in Redwood City, California, was redesigned and rebuilt. and construction is set to finish in two years. Deira Islands is a new coastal city that will add 40km (25mi) to Dubai’s coastline and house a population of around 250,000. Elsewhere in the region, Marinas Performance installed a 152-berth pontoon system on Dalma Island, 42km (27mi) off the coast of Abu Dhabi, and ART Marine was appointed marina operator of the first of four new marinas in the Al Zorah development in Ajman. The company will manage berthing facilities for vessels of 8-40m (26-131ft). Asia ramping up Developments in Southeast Asia didn’t lag behind. Nongsa Point Marina & Resort in Batam became the first marina in Indonesia to earn Global Gold Anchor accreditation and the prestigious 5 Gold Anchor status. The international marina has 65 berths, including two for vessels up to 130ft (40m). Marina Industries Association president Andrew Chapman said the marina provided the benchmark for marina development in the country. In Cambodia, the first phase of Princes Private Club Marina on the Mekong River in Phnom Penh completed with the installation of three superyacht berths. The project is seen as a significant milestone for tourism in the country and may be the first of several likely superyacht berthing projects. On Vietnam’s south-east coast, construction began on Ana Marina in Nha Trang. When complete, it will be the country’s first world-class marina, initially offering 60 berths for vessels of 20-40m (66-131ft) and extra wide berths for catamarans. Future phases will include a superyacht dock for six yachts up to 70m (230ft) in length and an additional 100m (328ft) berth is under construction. Landside developments include a swimming pool, restaurant, yacht club bar and ballroom, gym, spa, and a boatyard with hardstand, drystack, slipway and workshops. Ana Marina was designed by Camper & Nicholson Marinas and features Marinetek pontoons. Across the water in India, plans were floated for two landmark waterway projects. They include a marina at Belpaur, providing a waterfront of 1.8km (1mi) hosting floating restaurants, yacht clubs, aquariums and activities on land. The project plans are for a berthing facility of 30 berths minimum and comprehensive services. Quieter in Australia and New Zealand It was a comparatively quiet year for Australia and New Zealand. In Australia, Ardent Leisure Group made headlines by selling the d’Albora Marinas portfolio to a special purpose vehicle jointly owned by Sydney-based Balmain Corporation and Goldman Sachs for AU6 million and, in New Zealand, renovations completed at Motuoapa Marina. Work included excavation and removal of an island and reclamation of part of a lake. The marina’s new Bellingham Unifloat pontoons are arranged in a 158-slip configuration, with power pedestals and potable water available. Also in New Zealand, Kennedy Point Boatharbour was given the go-ahead to build a 186-berth floating marina at Kennedy Point in Putiki Bay, Waiheke Island. In addition to the floating berths, the marina will have up to 19 pile moorings, 30 public day berths and storage for kayaks and standup paddleboards. Finally, Lyttleton Port of Christchurch began building a new marina at the inner harbour pile mooring site in Lyttleton Harbour in the first stage of a wider regeneration plan to improve public access and amenities in the area. The marina, to be called Te Ana to reflect Kiwi cultural values, will be Canterbury’s only floating marina and will feature up to 200 berths. Installation of a 650ft (198m) long breakwater was a major element in a second phase redevelopment project at Provincetown Marina in Massachusetts, USA. www.marinaworld.com - January/February 2018 23
